New Service Lets Consumers Route Entertainment Via Broadband26 Jun, 2003 By: Hive News
Some former principals of Nullsoft, the company that developed the Gnutella file-sharing and Winamp MP3 player applications, are launching another service, Muse.net, that will let consumers route content they already own through a variety of devices within a home or via a broadband connection.
By installing the Muse.Net Agent on any broadband-connected PC, users can listen to their home MP3s at work, watch movies stored on their office PCs in their living rooms or access other digital media anytime and anywhere they are connected to the Internet.
The company is offering the system, which has access, playback and control services but does not allow file trading, with a 30-day free trial. Then users will pay $19.99 a month to keep it.
